    and I've noticed you fancy yourself the self-appointed forum editor. Incessantly , using the very opportunity provided to express your opinions on any given topic to whine about the OP, or various comments you disapprove of. So often, in fact, I doubt that even you've kept count.

    I have no idea what you are objecting to in this thread.
    who decided it was a suitable shortcut? It certainly wasn't the court. Is that just your own personal opinion? Or are you saying it's supported by the language the court uses? What I'm objecting to is the flagrant use of a term that a great many people find offensive. People, themselves, can not be illegal. You call it a "shortcut" . But, in fact, it's used to deny select individuals the respect of their innate dignity of human life.

    When a person decides not to respect and abide by our immigration laws to enter our Country, I would suggest that it is they that decided.

    If one commits murder, they are and are called murderers. If one commits a terrorist act, they are and are called terrorists. If one molests a child, they are and are called molesters. If one enters the country illegally, they are and are called illegals.

    If they don't respect the US enough to follow the proper procedures to come here, then yea, they are illegal aliens, or illegals for short. Sorry if it offends, but there are proper channels to avoid falling into that category.

    murder isn't illegal? Molesting a child isn't illegal? Committing a terrorist act isn't illegal?

    Identity theft is illegal. Not reporting income earned in the United States is illegal.

    oh, ok. So, what if they do respect this country but came here to , say, escape persecution? Ya know, like the people that founded this country? Or, to escaped brutal dictatorships? What of kids that were born here, or brought by their parents? And are you aware that labeling people, themselves, as being "illegals" is what the Nazi's did?
